NAPA COUNTY (KRON) — A suspect has been arrested after two people were injured in separate shootings across Napa early Wednesday morning.
The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Nicholas Angelo Zazzarino.
A first shooting happened at around 8:30 a.m. outside a busy Starbucks on Jefferson and Lincoln Avenue.
The shooting prompted a lockdown at Napa High School along with district offices.
Captain Pat Manser with Napa Police Department told KRON4 a 23-year-old male victim was struck in the abdomen and transported to a local hospital.
He is currently in critical condition and undergoing surgery.
The second shooting happened in the Sutherland neighborhood of Napa just a few miles away at 3300 block of MacBeth Street.
A 66-year-old man was shot and is in critical condition.
Police say he was driving when he saw a suspicious person looking into backyards. He pulled over to see what was going on and that’s when he was shot.
The two victims are not related in any way.
Police are still investigating the shootings.
Authorities say they are investigating three crime scenes.
Police caught up with Zazzarino when a citizen called 911 to report he was following a suspect who went inside his home in the 3200 block of Baywood Lane, authorities said.
When officers arrived, they detained Zazzarino. He was taken into custody without incident.
Officers recovered a semi-automatic handgun on Zazzarino, police said.
Zazzarino has been booked into the Napa County Department of Corrections for two counts of attempted murder and two counts of assault with a deadly weapon causing great bodily injury.
